This new season takes a sharp look at how the mythology behind Marvel has changed over time
Yesterday marked the return of Marvel’s Voices. A podcast hosted by Angélique Roché that focuses on in-depth conversations with diverse storytellers about their creative processes, collaborations, and professional journeys, regarding Marvel’s intellectual properties and history.
This four-year-old podcast began in 2018 and was soon followed up with a successful comics anthology adaptation called MARVEL’S VOICES #1 two years after its debut. Having grown with nearly 70 episodes, 8 anthologies, and over 20 essays spotlighting creators and characters representing different communities, there’s a lot to celebrate in regards to this series’ legacy.
The premiere episode of Marvel’s Voices Season 5 is available now on SiriusXM, Marvel Podcasts Unlimited on Apple Podcasts, and wherever podcasts are available. Also available this month as of February 1st, is the Marvel’s Voices: Legacy trade paperback, which collects MARVEL’S VOICES (2020) #1, MARVEL’S VOICES: LEGACY (2021) #1, reprints of significant stories, as well as brand new essays and excerpts of interviews. If that wasn’t enough, there is also, the upcoming February 16 release of MARVEL’S VOICES: LEGACY (2022) #1.
It’s a lot, we know, but so has been the legacy of Marvel’s longstanding history. A mythology that has evolved and retconned and changed for over 80 years, constantly adapting to the pop-cultural pulse of our times. As the world around us has changed, so has the Marvel Universe.
The first guest of the new season is legendary artist Brian Stelfreeze who was on MARVEL’S VOICES: LEGACY. You can listen to the most recent Marvel’s Voices Podcast to hear about Stelfreeze’s history, love of stories, and how his work has evolved since he started in comics in the late ’80s.
As for the rest of the season, be on the lookout for upcoming guests like the legendary Larry Hama and author Nic Stone. In a unique spin, Marvel’s Voices will also be mixing it up by opening the host seat to some guest voices.
